Media storage is an essential part of the content value chain. Dave Van Hoy and Jason Danielson will provide an overview of the technology of storage for media and the critical requirements for  industry users, including broadcasters, studios, cable providers, Internet delivery networks, and corporate video producers. Media operations are dependent on high-speed production, archive, and delivery architectures. At the same time, such requirements include continual scaling to meet the expansive demand for higher 1080P, 4K, 8K resolutions, denser 360 degree immersive media, 3D animations, faster renders, higher IOPS, more users, and increasing amounts of content. Real-world applications for on premise and cloud architectures will be discussed.

The evening will also include a demo of the Founders’ theatre’s Meyer Sound’s Constellation acoustic system and tours of NetApp’s new video production facilities and its world-class Data Visionary Center including 12 foot high cylindrical wall.
